Parental Involvement in Site-Based Management: Lessons from One Site.
Beck, Lynn G.; Murphy, Joseph
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v2 n2 p81-102 Apr-Jun 1999
Explores dynamics of parental involvement in one low-income, urban school struggling to improve student learning and to draw parents into all aspects of their children's education. Embracing a "family metaphor" helped participants overcome implementation barriers (overwhelming teacher expertise, culturally-based role expectations, and differences in language and experience).
